Shut Down the Kangaroo Meat Industry

Target: The Honorable Malcolm Turnbull, Prime Minister of Australia

Goal: Put an end to the kangaroo meat industry to save these imperiled species.

Kangaroo species are heavily endangered, and a recent documentary has shown that this is largely in part due to the species being hunted for their meat. The grisly and shocking film exposed the harsh realities of the kangaroo meat industry, most notably the cruel methods used by slaughterhouses. Those who praised the documentary have pointed out the hypocrisy: those who clamor for better treatment of cows and chickens turn a blind eye to the plight of the kangaroo.

It is clear that the conditions in slaughterhouses are only part of the problem, however. The steady decline in kangaroos over the years due to poaching and environmental factors, plus the inhumane slaughter methods, are proof that the kangaroo meat industry is becoming more trouble than it is worth. With the loss of habitat and the species barely able to breed and keep their numbers stable, the constant poaching will render kangaroos extinct in a matter of years.

We cannot let Australia’s iconic mascot disappear. We must ensure the many species of kangaroos survive, and put an end to the inhumane meat industry is the first step. Sign this petition to stop the poaching and slaughter of kangaroos.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Prime Minister Turnbull,

A recent documentary has exposed the harsh realities of the kangaroo meat trade, most notably the conditions and methods in the slaughterhouses. Kangaroos are now at risk of extinction, due to environmental factors and loss of habitat, but mostly due to poaching of the animals for their meat.

The decline of the species coupled with the cruelty of the slaughterhouses equal a toxic industry that must be shut down. Kangaroos are denied the chance to rebuild their numbers as they are hunted down, and some species could disappear completely in a matter of years if this practice is not stopped. You must ban the hunting and killing of kangaroos and shut down the meat industry as soon as possible. The lives of living creatures are worth far more than the monetary gain of their meat sales.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Can’t you sick scumbags find anything else to eat? STOP this awful sick menu. Kangaroo are not to be eaten. They are not food.

  3. Elizabeth Jache says:

    Like that scumbag asswipe animal torturer that used his dog to torment and murder a kangaroo, and then blamed the kangaroo. A drunken, redneck, subhuman pos and all the worthless turds like it that perpetrate these crimes and try excuse it. They all need to be punished until they go away permanently and stop polluting our planet with their sleazy actions.

    Someone needs to check the facts! Kangaroos are not endangered in Australia! They aren’t even listed as vulnerable as yet! The above pictured is a wallaby not a kangaroo! There is so much wrong with this petition it’s not funny. I do not agree in the kangaroo meat industry, although this has been blown out of proportion!

  8. ALL animals — human AND nonhuman — want to love, be loved, enjoy their freedom, & live on their own terms. BE VEGAN & end the part YOU play in upholding “acceptable” violence, animal cruelty, & exploitation inside cultural “norms” of society. Acknowledge the VICTIMS of your non-vegan habits & turn your heart towards justice rather than socially accepted injustice. It’s not too late to learn compassion & reverence for life. vegankit.com, bitesizevegan.org, goveganworld.com & freefromharm.org
